Includes bibliographical references (pages [335]-370) and index.
"The best-selling author of How Children Succeed returns with a devastatingly powerful, mind-changing inquiry into higher education in the United States"-- Provided by publisher.
Can a college education today provide real opportunity to young Americans seeking to improve their station in life? Tough reveals how the landscape of higher education has shifted in recent decades, and exposes the hidden truths of how the system works and whom it works for. He introduces readers to the people who really make higher education go, while taking them on a journey from Ivy League seminar rooms to community college welding shops, from giant public flagship universities to tiny experimental storefront colleges. -- adapted from jacket
